I added the M700s to my system and was extremely happy with how they gave seemingly limitless power to musical and movie transients. The added bass control they provided over my A/V receiver was a generous and surprising side benefit. The sound of these amps is far from stale, fresh open and clean is how I’d describe them.
I then added a DSJr to the system, removing the A/V receiver completely, and was taken aback by the veil that had been lifted from musical playback in my living room. It was the first time I’ve ever heard a piano and an electric guitar so real sounding that it convinced my brain momentarily that the instrument was litterly playing in the room.
Due to the extreme sensitivity of my speakers and my new found understanding of signal handling, thanks to these forums and the great people in them, I getting into the preamp market. After reading all the information about pairing preamps with the directstream DACs I’m taking a hard look at the BHK. So far the stellar amps and the DSJr have made incredible improvements in my system and from what I’ve read I hope the BHK pre does it thing and takes my sound one step further, especially at lower listening volumes.
